Vacation is an important part of life.
In most of Europe most working people get 4 – 6 weeks of annual vacation.
I say most because there are certain groups that have to be more, um, creative to get consecutive days of free time.
Farmers, especially those with livestock, are one group.
So are bloggers…..
I’m taking a holiday.
Family is crossing the pond to help.
We’re going to be doing touristy things like wine tasting.
We’re going to be doing family things like staying up late reminiscing and laughing and telling poorly kept secrets.
I’m taking this opportunity to schedule some recipe updating. I’ll tidy them all up when I’m back to work. (Done!)

‘Egg’ Noodles with Tomatoes & Feta
These are noodles made from eggs. They’re basically a thin omelet, sliced into strips. I add a bit of flour to help make them a bit firmer. They hold up very well to a sauce. This could be a first course or light lunch. Make more noodles for a main course.
My tomato was yellow.
